"The Big Bang Theory," CBS's megahit sitcom, is scheduled to begin filming season 8 at the end of the month, but Warner Bros studio and the cast are still hung up re-negotiating their salaries.

According to a report from Deadline Hollywood, the contracts of the "Original Five" stars — Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar — are the only missing pieces needed to start production on time.

Without those, "production on Season 8 may be pushed."

Newer cast members Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik renewed their contracts last fall, and the show itself has been re-ordered through season 10.

"We’re feeling very confident that everything will work out," said CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler, Deadline reported on Thursday. "These deals always get miraculously done."

Lead star Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon on the show, was nominated for an Emmy for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series" earlier this month. He was also nominated for his role in the HBO film "The Normal Heart," which tells the story of HIV/AIDS among gay men in 1980s New York.

The Hollywood Reporter also announced last week that "Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson will moderate this years "Big Bang Theory" panel at New York's Comic-Con convention this Friday, July 25.

Melissa Rauch, who plays Bernadette, moderated last year, with Johnny Galecki — aka Leonard — making a surprise appearance much to the crowd's delight.

TV Guide reported that Kunal Nayyar has also been active outside of the show, reprising his role as "ladies' man and sex addict Neal" on the latest season of TBS's "Sullivan and Son" earlier this month.
